fragrance oilsWhat’s your name & Your Company Name:  My name is Katrina Wood and my Company is called Innascents.

Why did you decide to go into business?  What was your motivation?  How long have you been in business?  I love Scented Candles.  After our first daughter was born in 2006 I became more aware of the chemicals that are in different products being used around the house.   After researching alternatives for scented candles I stumbled onto SOY.  That’s when my company INNASCENTS began in 2010.  The vision is to create an eco-friendly candle that burns clean, doesn’t leave a carbon footprint and changes the world one soy bean at a time.  All of our candles are proudly hand crafted in Guelph, Ontario. We only use the highest quality SOY, cotton cored wicks and premium, uncut fragrance oils that are free of added “fillers” and pesticides.

What products do you make and sell?  Currently we produce and sell Soy Container Candles and Cube Wax Melts in a variety of fragrances.  We attend the local Guelph Farmers Market every Saturday and offer “refills” of our container candles at a reduced cost.  We will also be attending the Made by Hand Show at the International Centre in Mississauga on April 20th.

What are your business goals?  The business had paused for a bit after the birth of our second child but is now back and looking forward to the future.  Our goal is to continue informing consumers about the benefits of Soy and creating a brand that people can trust.

What are some products you use from Natures Garden; what are your favorite products from Natures Garden?  Some of the very best fragrances we use come from Natures Garden.  Some of the best sellers are the Sacred Sandalwood, Aloe and cucumber and Baby Powder.  We look for high quality fragrance oils and that is what you can find with Natures Garden’s products!!!

Sisters of Soy Wax Candles

This entry was posted in candle clamshell tarts, candle fragrance oils, candle making supplies, candle molds, candle scents, candle wicks, Natures Garden and tagged , , , , , , , , on by .

candle making supplies1.  What’s your name & Your Company Name:  We are sisters Peggy Petryshyn and Marlo Costescu.  Our company is Bluebell Soy Candles Inc.

2.  Why did you decide to go into business?  What was your motivation?  How long have you been in business?  When Marlo’s husband died suddenly, she needed a hobby to focus on to help her in her grieving process.  That is how Bluebell Soy Candles came about.  We have been in business since July of 2012.  We’re into all natural, healthy things so the idea of all natural candles was very appealing to us.  After doing research on the various types of waxes, we  decided we should make our own natural soy candles and tarts.  We light a soy candle every day to send a message to Danny that we love him and really miss him and think of him every day. 

3.  What products do you make and sell?  We make tea lights, chunk votives and wax tarts from 100% natural soy wax.  We also do custom orders so if you want jar candles, we can do those as well.  Our latest idea is making wedding favors with a tea light or tart wrapped in beautiful netting.  A custom made thank you note from the bride and groom can also be attached to each candle.

4.  What are your business goals?  Our goals are to increase our online presence and get more sales from our Etsy store and our Facebook store.  We really love making candles so it’s imperative that we increase our sales so we can continue doing what we love.

5.  What are some products you use from Natures Garden; what are your favorite products from Natures Garden?  We absolutely love the fragrance oils from Nature’s Garden.  Some of our favorites are Lavender, Black Raspberry Vanilla, Egyptian Musk, Ginger Peach and the Cherry is fabulous!   Fragrances from other companies do not compare!  We also buy wicks, tea light cups, molds – whatever we need to create our wonderful candles.

1. What’s your name & Your Company Name:  Ashley Priester & AP Home Decor

2. Why did you decide to go into business? What was your motivation? How long have you been in business? I decided to go into business after a falling out at my previous job 4 years ago. I told myself I would never work for someone like that again and decided to take my future into my own hands. I went to the library, took out books on candle making since I loved burning them and found a clean way to make them and sell them to others who love them as much as me. I have been doing this for over 3 years now.

3. What products do you make and sell? I make all natural soy candles, wax melts & I also personalize ceramic wall plaques as a décor item for your home, office, etc.

4. What are your business goals? My business goals are falling into place nicely. Someday very soon I hope to have a store of my own selling the products I make, along with many others from friends I have made along the way or inspired to take up a crafty hobby.

5. What are some products you use from Natures Garden? I love everything from Natures Garden. I buy my soy wax and scents. I love the choices available for scents. When my customers ask me if I have a scent I tell them there is a very good chance I can get it for them, which makes them happy customers!!

mishelle

1.What’s your name & Your Company Name: My name is Mischelle Martell, and my company is The Soap Opera

2.Why did you decide to go into business? I was already in business, making handcrafted jewelry. I own a brick & mortar store and, as I love all things handmade, I decided to give
soap making a try, not only for myself, but to add something new and special to my selection of gifts.

3.What was your motivation? I bought my first bar of handmade soap several years ago after a friend of mine explained how handmade soap could help the dry patches and excess oil my face – as well as my rough, dry skin in
general. I bought a bar and instantly noticed the difference. My face was not longer oily or dry, the rough patches on my arms and legs were soft and silky…I was hooked! Immediately I looked into
making my own soaps…and my love of soaping just blossomed from there.

4.How long have you been in business? I have been actively soaping now for 3 years and have been in the business of handcrafted items (jewelry and gifts) for 14 years.

5.What products do you make and sell? For bath & body: cold processed soaps, lotions, body butters, bath bombs, shampoos & conditioners, room & linen sprays, bubble bath, carpet powders, lip balms, perfume oils, body mist sprays, clay
facial masks, a “WEN” type cleansing conditioner, tub teas, container candles, and more.

6.What are your business goals?  Running a profitable organization, increasing my staff, giving my customers  the assurance that my company is easy to do business with and
improving customer experience, launching new products, becoming more efficient in business operations, growth (I plan on moving to a larger store within the next 2 years).

7.What are some products you use from Natures Garden? Fragrance oils (Oh, My!), candle wax, base oils, herbs, cosmetic clays, packaging…

1.  What’s your name & Your Company Name:  My name is Jennifer Snyder and I own JS Homespun Creations.

2.  Why did you decide to go into business?  What was your motivation?  How long have you been in business?  I have always been a creative and crafty person.  I started making gift baskets and party favors, which slowly turned into making my own candles to put into those gift baskets I was making.  I soon figured out that the gift basket biz was for a special kind of customer and not for an every day customer, so I decided to focus my attention on just making candles.  I also make soap and other bath & body products, which started with a lot of research and reading about herbs, oils, and pre-made bases.  JS Homespun Creations was born in the Fall of 2010, and this year will be my 3rd year selling at local craft shows.  I participate in about 20 craft shows a year.

3.  What products do you make and sell?  I make soy candles, handcraft soaps, and natural bath & body products, like scrubs, lotions, and bath bombs.

4.  What are your business goals?  For this year, my business goals would be more advertising and sales.  I live in a small town, so getting my name out there has been at the top of my list.  A big dream of mine, as I’m sure with most crafters, is to one day open my own shop.

5.  What are some products you use from Natures Garden?  Oh my goodness, I probably can keep NG in business!  It’s become my one stop shop for supplies.  From your fragrance oils to your plastic jars.  I love that NG has decided to add the herbs, carrier oils and butters to their product line, it has truly made my life easier!   One of my favorite products is the natural Goat’s Milk soap, I love it and my customers do too!!
